More information about the foundation



The Deutsches Design Museum Foundation

The not-for-profit Deutsches Design Museum Foundation promotes and establishes design as an interdisciplinary subject in the consciousness of professional circles and the public at large. With innovative funding projects, we help multipliers and even young people to learn more about aesthetics and to develop their creative potential. The work performed by our foundation in close cooperation with academia and research shapes an interdisciplinary initiative aimed at raising awareness of design.

Discover Design

Our educational and cultural campaign DISCOVER DESIGN is growing, remains willing to embrace change and promotes new trends. Experts, designers, students and teachers and well-known figures from the world of business and politics all work together. And this is how a future-oriented foundation project ensues: a digital photo archive documenting product design in the modern age.
